LOOK OUT, LOOK OUT…THERE’S A JELLYATRIC ABOUT!
Those Jellyatrics are up to their old tricks again. Bill Bird burst the boy from next door’s ball (watch the video below to find out why), Mister Miser put another button in the supermarket charity box, Benny Dorm told Frau Zimmer a rude joke, Frau Zimmer responded by hitting him over the head with a bible. And as for Pearl Stitch? Well…she just laughed.
Look at Pearl Stitch, sitting there knitting a scarf for her old pal Benny Dorm, and smiling away. What further proof could be needed to indicate how much FUN she thinks this whole Jellyatrics malarkey all is?
She’s one of our faves, old Pearl. All the evidence you need that Jellyatrics really are the sweets’ sweets and the treats’ treats. A real gift to the world!
But where did they come from? And aren’t these old timers well past their sell-by date?
IDEAL FOR YOUR NEXT MOTHER’S DAY, FATHER’S (OR GRANDMOTHER’S AND GRANDFATHER’S) DAY PROMOTIONS
“Past our sell-by date! How very dare you.” Since we started out as Jelly babies to commemorate the end of the First World War, we’ve come a long way, I can tell you. And we’re still as fruity, juicy and sweet as ever!”
Okay Mister Miser, keep your hair on. But he is right, you know: 100 years on from when they were known as “Peace Babies” those little bundles of joy have grown and matured to become…well…these guys – The Jellyatrics.
Longer in the tooth, a little more eccentric, and definitely sourer, they nonetheless retain their natural, characterful goodness. Nothing artificial about them at all.
Just don’t pinch their slippers!
